Malaga is the fifth largest city in Spain and with its international airport, this is the gateway into the Andalusia region of Spain.
Malaga is located on the Costa del Sol coast of Spain which translates as coast of the sun and enjoys a subtropical Mediterranean climate which naturally attracts tourists from all over Europe.
Although most visitors arriving at the airport will disperse to the various beach resorts such as Marbella, Fuengirola, Torremolinos and Benalmadena, the city itself is well worth a visit as it enjoys a rich history goign all the way back to 800BC.
The city is influenced by the Greeks, Romans and Moors (Arabs). You can see the Moorish influence in the famous sights such as the Alcazaba fortress dating back to the 8th Century and the Gibralfaro Castle (Castillo de Gibralfaro) built during the 14th century on the site of a former Phoenician lighthouse and overlooking the city from its hilltop location.
The most famous sight is probably the cathedral – Catedral de la Incarnacion which was started in 1528 and finished in 1782 (well this is Spain!).
The old town of Malaga around Calle Larios has many narrow winding streets with small cafes, squares and shops.
We also suggest a visit to the Jardín Botánico La Concepción (Botanic Gardens) of Málaga. Slightly outside the city, this has over 1,000 species of plants and flowers from all over the world.
Málaga is also famous as the birthplace of the artist Pablo Picasso. Don’t miss the Picasso Museum which houses over 230 works of his art.
Many people of course come to this region for the many beaches and Malaga the city itself, also has some good beaches such as La Malagueta, El Palo and Pedregalejo.
Malaga…. a city rich in sights and culture.
